Official DOR Response to Marijuana Tax Issue

8/28/2019 12:04:43 PM +00:00

We received an official response from the Oregon Department of Revenue regarding the Marijuana Taxation issue and the OMMPOS METRC Sales Reconciliation tool. First a quick timeline.

  • OMMPOS was the first Oregon company to begin reporting to METRC in 2016.
  • OMMPOS reported GROSS sales values to METRC and NET sales values through our Instant Tax E-file tool from Q2 2016 - Q1 2019.
  • In May 2019 we received reports that stores were being taxed at a higher tax rate than they should have been.
  • We create the METRC Sales Reconciliation Tool to enable retailers to correct their METRC sales receipts to match their OMMPOS sales receipts.

Yesterday the Oregon Department of Revenue responded to us to let us know that they have been receiving a lot of phone calls with questions about this issue. They wanted us to let you know that

  • No customers of OMMPOS or any other point of sales system are being taxed at a higher rate than what their sales records indicate. We rely on taxpayers to correctly report their sales information and are grateful for your continued partnership in that goal
  • When we identify a deficiency in the course of an audit we do not necessarily know which point of sales system the retailer is using (and some retailers switch point of sales systems in the course of their business).  In the course of several audits within the past year we identified that the sales figures getting reported to OLCC from some retailers did not match the sales figures reported on returns. When retailers provided point of sales records detailing actual sales that corresponded to their returns, we reversed deficiencies.

Please give us a call with any questions. Thank you!

OMMP's New Monthly Reporting Requirement

6/4/2016 10:29:48 PM +00:00

Bottom Line: If you are a dispensary, grower or processor, the OMMP has a new report for you to fill out every month. The new OMMP reporting website is http://ommpsystem.oregon.gov. This reporting website is not a POS; it is a portal for dispensaries, growers and processors to log into every month to upload data about their transfers. The Good News: If you are a dispensary just log into OMMPOS and click our OMMP Transfers Report to get this done in under 10 minutes.

Yesterday, June 3rd was one of a series of OMMP sponsored meetings. This meeting took place at the public library in Seaside, Oregon. There were about 40 people in attendance at the first 10:00 am session and only 4 people in the 2nd 12:00 pm session.

The new Website is not a POS

We reviewed a slide show presentation of the new reporting website. This reporting website is not a POS, it is a website that allows growers, processors and dispensaries upload monthly information about transfers.

What to Report

  • Useable Marijuana
  • Cannabinoid Edibles
  • Cannabinoid Topicals
  • Cannabinoid Tinctures
  • Cannabinoid Capsules
  • Cannabinoid Suppositories
  • Cannabinoid Transdermal Patches
  • And Cannabinoid products other than the products list above
  • Cannabinoid concentrates in solid and liquid form
  • Cannabinoid Extracts in Solid and Liquid Form
  • Quantity of immature marijuana plants
  • Quantity of Seeds

The OMMP representatives then answered a lot of questions posed by the many growers, processors and dispensary owners in the room. Here are the highlights from the meeting:

Who Needs to Report
  • Growers
    • Who are not growing for themselves
    • Or who grow at a grow site address where there are more than 12 mature plants
    • Or grow at a grow site that is not the patient’s residence
    • Or who sell excess useable medical marijuana, seed or immature plants to OHA medical processors or medical dispensaries.
  • Processors
  • Dispensaries

When are Reports Due?

  • Reporting began June 1st 2016 and is due on the 10th of each month. 
  • The first report for the month of June is due on July 1st. Growers, Processors and Dispensaries are then responsible for sending the OMMP a report each month due on the 10th of the month.
Will this be on the test?
  • We heard from the OMMP that the purpose of these reports is to begin recording data so that a year or more down the line they can begin to form some ideas about trends and perhaps use those trends to inform policy.
  • When asked will these reports lead to audits the reply was that non-compliance, meaning failure to report would be the first largest factor in who would be audited. Again, those people who should report but fail to will likely be audited. The fees for failure to report are stiff. Up to $500 per day.

* Here is the key bit, and I will probably re-type this at the top of the article. Dispensaries get special treatment here. Because the OMMP's system is not quite yet setup to receive dispensary transfer information the OMMP will accept manual records (excel files) from dispensaries for the time being.

OMMPOS is working now to create an OMMP Transfer Report to make this process a 1-button click. Stay tuned to be updated when this new report is ready to go.


Thank you to the hard working staff over at the OMMP!
